Weekend Passport: African environmentalism, Ukraine's national poet, and revolutionary Irish women

Every week Nari Safavi, co-founder of the Pasfarda Arts and Culture Exchange, gives his picks for a global weekend in Chicago. This week he'll suggest a public discussion between local activists and representatives of top environmental justice groups in Africa, a concert held in honor of Taras Shevchenko, and an exploration of the role of women in Ireland's revolutionary history.
